SubjectRe: [patch] warn on release_region() from irq context
the rationale for this patch is that the lock validator (which now 
tracks rwlock dependencies too, see output below) noticed that floppy.c
does a release_region() from softirq context -> ouch. I'm working on the
floppy.c fix for that.


[ BUG: illegal lock usage! ]
illegal {softirq-on} -> {in-softirq} usage.
rcu_torture_rea/264 [HC0[0]:SC1[2]:HE1:SE0] takes:
(resource_lock){+-}, at: [<c0123997>] __release_region+0x37/0xf0
{softirq-on} state was registered at:
[<c0122c85>] irq_exit+0x45/0x50
hardirqs last enabled at: [<c011d39e>] vprintk+0x32e/0x3e0
softirqs last enabled at: [<c0122c85>] irq_exit+0x45/0x50
other info that might help us debug this:
no locks held by rcu_torture_rea/264.
